Wellness Wednesdays

This year in addition to the RULER Approach and Responsive Classroom’s Morning Meeting, we had Wellness Wednesdays where students engaged in a social emotional learning lesson with various read aloud books and discussion questions. We designed these lessons based on the core competencies identified by CASEL (the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning). These 5 competencies are: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. Each month a different topic was presented along with a book, supplementary videos, and differentiated questions.

Please find the link to the list of books read this year below! Also included are student book suggestions.

  • 2021-2022: Are you Returning to PS 166?

    It is that time of year where we ask the question: Do you plan for your child to return to PS 166 in the fall?

    Please take the SURVEY and answer yes, no or maybe. Your answers are in no way binding! This is just a way to start planning for the number of classes we need for each grade.

    Please do not answer for your current fifth grade students. We know they won't be here in September.
